Arsenal have reached out Paris Saint-Germain about a possible transfer for midfielder Christopher Nkunku, according to the player’s agent.
Nkunku has been touted as Aaron Ramsey’s potential successor at Emirates Stadium, with the Welshman set to leave the club this summer.
Nkunku’s agent Jose-Karl Pierre-Fanfan reacted recently to the rumours of a possible departure for the midfielder and he revealed that Arsenal have already made contact with PSG to discuss a possible deal.
His words, “I am here [in the studio] which is not a good sign,” Fanfan told Canal +. “There is a real interest from Arsenal for Nkunku, but the discussions are quite complicated. There are restrictions from Arsenal’s side, they cannot do a transfer in the middle of the season.
“It is still being discussed with PSG, things could still happen in the next 48 hours, but as I said, the fact that I am here means that it does not look good.
“His situation will be evaluated in June, then he will have just one year left on his contract, and his situation will need to be evaluated.
“He is a young boy, who needs to play, enjoy himself, and to sign up for a project for the long term, that is what he is looking for, and he was in that phase with Arsenal but it looks complicated. If we have to wait, then he is ready to do that, he will wait.”
